Recycle Bras for a Cause

By Mercedes Sanchez Let's face it. You probably own a couple of bras you don't wear (or shouldn't be wearing) anymore. But here's why you shouldn't just toss them out.

Soma Intimates, a lingerie boutique, is encouraging women to donate bras to their Giving Is Beautiful charity -- a nationwide initiative collecting new and gently used bras for women in need.

Bras are one of the least donated items for women who are homeless or victims of domestic violence.  It’s such a small and easy thing to donate, but it truly makes a big difference to women who are experiencing financial or emotional hardship.

Bra donations can be dropped off at Soma Intimates boutiques across the country. For those unable to get to a Soma boutique, a mail-in option is provided with details at Soma.com until August 14th.
